More Great Deals!

I love myAccuquilt die cutter! It makes accurately cutting out pieces for quilts like the one above a snap! I’m sure you would love it too.

I’m not sure why this wasn’t announced until an hour ago, but Accuquilt has really sweetened their Black Friday deals!

As soon as I got the email about this, I went to the site and purchased some things off my wishlist. If you have a die cutter and you are looking for dies, now is the time! My understanding is that these deals are good through the weekend.

Once again, if you purchase after clicking through my links, it won’t cost you anymore, but I get a small kickback to help offset my blog costs.

Also, the deals continue over at Fat Quarter Shop all weekend as well. 20% off everything and lots of awesome flash sales as well.

Happy shopping!

Finish It Up Friday ~ The Christmas Quilt

I finished! And it has been gifted, so today I can share with you all.

I had this gray chevron in my stash that I used for the back.

I tried to use up every scrap I had. Can you see how I pieced pieces to have enough?

I actually remembered a label for a change.

If you are shopping, be careful out there. I’m not venturing out! Have a great day!

Fat Quarter Shop Deals Have Started!

Are you all tired and full or turkey? Ready for a bit of online shopping? I am. And the Fat Quarter Shop sales have started!

Fat Quarter Shop Black Friday Sale 2019

I have been saving my pennies all year for this sale. Seriously. I use iBotta. It is an app that gives cash back on things I’d purchase anyway, like milk and eggs, but also, purchases on Amazon or at JoAnns. You can have the cash transferred to your bank or PayPal account. I’ve been letting mine accumulate since last November so I have cash to spend guilt free on fabric! Click here if you want to learn more.

Anyway, the Fat Quarter Shop Sale has just begun and runs through November 30 at midnight. I can’t wait to see what the flash sales will be!

Happy shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Design Wall Wednesday

These blocks were made during a Military Mystery Quilt Along hosted by Alycia over a year ago. They ended up on my UFO list this year.

After making all the blocks, I ended up using some of them to make this QOV.

I put the rest of the blocks away and forgot about them. I was looking at my list of goals this month and thought, just maybe I could squeeze in one more QOV if I used these bits.

I still have to prepare for Thanksgiving and watch my littles today. But maybe….

Have a great day!

This and That

The top of my Christmas quilt is together. I hope to get this quilted and the binding machine sewn before the weekend so I can relax with the hand stitching this weekend.

I’ve been listening to this book. I find it quite interesting. I will say that I feel a bit lost now and again, Temple Grandin is quite a ways above me on the IQ scale.

E1 and E2 helped me trim my tree! Winslow has been doing her best to untrim it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I have a new quilt inspector.

E3 thought he was pretty funny!

I found this on the inter webs some years ago. It still makes me laugh!

Lastly, Fat Quarter Shop is ramping up their deals this week. Click the link and check out their Flash Sales.

Have a great day!

The Most Beautiful UFO

I received these blocks as a gift from blog reader, Jan, several years ago. I was immediately smitten and still am in awe of her generosity!

They are stunningly gorgeous. But I can see why they didn’t make it past the block stage. There are slight variations in block size. Trimmed square, they would range from 12-14 inches. I need to figure out how to contend with that.

I also need to figure out how to set them. I might need to make another. I think I can do it from my vintage stash. Here’s a look at the back.

I really need to come up with a plan. They are too beautiful to stay in a box any longer.

Have a great day!
